Construction Litigation

PDFEmailPrint

Krieg DeVault’s Construction Litigation team is an integral part of the firm’s well-respected Construction Law Practice. Municipalities spearheading economic development projects in their communities, and leading companies that design, develop, finance, build, and manage commercial construction projects, rely on our construction industry knowledge when issues arise over a project. We understand that construction disputes pose unique challenges because they involve highly technical standards and requirements, a complex web of parties and contracts, and time-sensitive pressures of unwanted project delays and cost overruns. Our lawyers are dedicated to charting a litigation course that supports the business objectives, goals and time constraints of our clients – through any phase of a project and after its completion.

The Krieg DeVault Difference

Our firm brings a true team approach to any construction litigation matter. This involves the strategic collaboration of our seasoned construction, real estate, municipal, and land use professionals and our formidable litigators, who together share a sophisticated grasp of the legal landscape impacting the construction industry. This combination of skill sets, coupled with our collective knowledge of the substantive law and practical implications of any construction dispute, enables us to pursue optimal and efficient outcomes for our clients.

The Work We Do

Clients on all sides of an economic development or construction project rely on us to identify and resolve the myriad of issues that can arise over the life of a project and beyond. We pursue and defend construction law claims that entail:

  • Bidding and procurement disputes
  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of warranty
  • Breach of workmanlike performance
  • Cost overruns and cost recovery
  • Delay and acceleration claims
  • Design error
  • Environmental concerns
  • Extra work claims
  • Insolvency and collection matters
  • Lender priority disputes
  • Mechanic’s liens
    • Lien placement
    • Foreclosure
    • Defense
  • Municipal payment bond claims
  • Negligence
  • No-lien municipal contracts
  • Owner's personal liability claims
  • Project management issues
  • Property damage
  • Surety and bond default.


The Construction Litigation team is experienced in effectively and efficiently resolving construction disputes not only in the state and federal courts, but also through arbitration, mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.
